A treasure hunter has appealed to find the relatives of a First World War veteran after unearthing several of his medals in a school playing field.
Tony Bibby discovered the precious award 10 years ago in Horndon-on-the-Hill in Essex, believed to belong to Harry Tucker of the Bedfordshire Regiment.
The 53-year-old has so far been unable to trace the man's family. The award is thought to be a British War Medal, handed to all soldiers who fought abroad in the Great War.
Speaking to the Bedfordshire on Sunday, Mr Bibby said:
With this year being the centenary, I thought it was time I had another go at locating Mr Tucker’s relatives.
The greatest reward that I could get is to track down a living relative and give it to them.
